    Hi All,

    I was thinking about setting up an echolink node, this was the set up I was thinking about. Using audio cables.

    -------------------------------> Baofeng mic port with VOX enabled
    Echolink node
    with USB soundcard
    <-------------------------------- Baofeng speaker port

    Is this setup possibile at all?

    It's possible but it will probably sound like crap and won't work well.
    Depending on the sound device you probably need attenuation in the mic/line in audio and the same with trying to feed speaker/line out audio into a radio mic jack.
    You need more than just audio connections.
    You need PTT and COS lines or your node will not work properly.
    VOX operated nodes suck.
